Airing tonight, One World: Together At Home will be a music-marathon bringing together some of the world's most famous artists and tv personalities in the fight against coronavirus. Here is when and where to watch it.

What is One World: Together at Home?

It is a global live-streamed and televised special in support of the fight against COVID-19.

Curated with Lady Gaga, it features some of the world's most famous musicians, actors, TV hosts and sports personalities.

The event was launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) and international advocacy organization Global Citizen.

It aims at showing unity and solidarity to all the people who are suffering because of coronavirus, as well as at celebrating the healthcare workers doing life-saving work on the front lines.

"It is a love letter to our doctors. A love letter to our nurses and other health care professionals who are risking their own lives for the sake of ours," said Lady Gaga, speaking via video-teleconference at the WHO press briefing in Geneva.

Who is taking part?

The event is divided in two parts: a live-streaming on digital platforms first, and a TV broadcast later.

The live-streaming (8pm-2am CEST time) will be joined by the celebrities among the likes of Annie Lennox, Heidi Klum, Jack Black, James McAvoy, John Legend, Lewis Hamilton, Liam Payne, Michael Bublé, Rita Ora, Samuel L Jackson, Sarah Jessica Parker and The Killers (full list here).

This part of the show includes stories from healthcare workers around the world.

The broadcast (2am-4am CEST time) will feature artists like Alicia Keys, Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Matthew McConaughey, Oprah Winfrey, Paul McCartney, Pharrell Williams, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, and Usher (full list here).
